More information

  • Usage

    Triamcinolone (Kenalog) is a type of medication known as a synthetic corticosteroid medication. Triamcinolone creams are absorbed by the skin and exert anti-inflammatory and anti-itching effects. Triamcinolone works by activating specific glucocorticoid receptors which ultimately reduce the synthesis of prostaglandins and leukotrienes – chemicals that increase the inflammatory response. Triamcinolone also inhibits the production of cytokines. In function, triamcinolone acts similarly to other steroid medications such as the Medrol Dosepak (methylprednisolone) and prednisone.

  • Triamcinolone – Side Effects

    Triamcinolone, like other medications, can cause side effects. Triamcinolone side effects include burning, itching, irritation, dermatitis and skin atrophy. Triamcinolone is a steroid medication and should be used cautiously as it can cause HPA axis suppression and hyperglycemia. Triamcinolone acetonide and alcohol should not be used together. Questions about side effects related to triamcinolone use should be directed to one’s medical provider and pharmacist.

  • Cost Information

    Triamcinolone is considered an affordable medication. Triamcinolone 0.1% cream costs under $4 for a 15 gram tube of triamcinolone cream. Kenalog (triamcinolone) cream is available as triamcinolone 0.025% cream, triamcinolone 0.1% cream and triamcinolone 0.5% cream. Farmington Drugs & Medical Supplies takes pride in offering the most cost efficient services and prescriptions to our patients.

  • Dosage

    The absorption of triamcinolone varies from person to person. Triamcinolone cream should be stored at room temperature and should not be frozen. The cost of a triamcinolone ointment prescription may be covered by some insurance plans. Triamcinolone coupons may also be available online at times.
